Twins often have an extremely close bond. Identical twins do, and so do fraternal twins who do not look alike but have grown up together as constant companions. Twin sisters often retain close relationships throughout their lives. Shopping for a pair of ladies that are twins can be daunting, because you're looking for two perfect gifts instead of one. However, there are gifts targeted specifically at female twins.
Clothing and Accessories
Young twins are often dressed identically. Adult women and teenage girls may not want to match completely, to show their individuality. Accessories like hats and scarves can be purchased in the same style, but in different colors or patterns. Jewelry like rings can be purchased with the same setting, but with different stones to make them unique. There are also t-shirts that proudly proclaim the wearer's twin status, for girls who want to match.
Books containing art and photos of twins for your coffee table are a gift twin ladies might enjoy. Over-sized books about twins can also be found that contain short stories and real-life anecdotes. There are also many books containing art, photography and poetry about sisterhood. Ladies may also enjoy books focused on being women and female friendship. Twin ladies with different tastes might enjoy art books from the same publisher in different styles.
Twin sisters may be interested in books on the science of twins. Books like "Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us About Human Behavior" by Dr. Nancy Segal studies what twins show us about human relationships and psychology. Twins allow scientists to study the nature-vs.-nurture conflict and come closer to discovering which influences us more. "Twins: And What They Tell Us About Who We Are" by Lawrence Wright covers these topics and more.
Twin sisters may enjoy getting pampered at a day spa together. Getting manicures together is a way to share a luxurious treat, and twins can choose matching or different colors for their nails to express their individuality. Getting treated to a facial scrub or pedicure is also relaxing. Getting a massage relaxes muscles and drains tension. There are various kinds of massages for twins to choose from individually. Gift cards can be purchased at most spas.
